Ghehe, I wouldn't want to be born in the 30's because of the second world war that has raged here in de fourties.
According to my father, who is from 1947, the fifties and early sixties were a pretty good time. There was plenty for everyone and rebuilding a country together apparently creates a huge amount of solidarity.

Country probably does matter, but the 60's are highly overrated to me. I mean its this highly aspired to decade and I just can't imagine why. You've got so many more permutations of music today than you ever had then. If you didn't like what Big Music was selling you, you either made it yourself or you ****ed off.

I collect old 8 and 16mm home films.
They can give a really good image of the time and there's usually only one of them, which makes them really unique.
I've got quite some now, still having to look at a lot of them.
It appears to me that the 60's and 70's were a pretty friendly period in this Area (the Netherlands, including nearby countries Belgium, Germany, Luxemburg, France).

I recently uploaded some fragments of one of these movies to youtube.
Quality sucks, used a photocamera to do this, as it was only to show someone the old french cars that are on it .

I'm the guy talking pretty fast most of the time by the way ;D.

Im not sure where your from, but I go to a concert with a ton of older band in July called Rock N Resort Music Festival. Its a weekend long and they book mostly older bands and tribute bands. Its awesome because I get to hear the music I love without being bore years in advanced...lol

I'm afraid I won't be joining you as I'm from the Netherlands.
That would be an expensive trip

We have here the 'pinkpop classic' festival, which is meant for older bands. But I think it's a bit too mainstream for me. They are thinking of creating a new festival at the location where the Lowlands festival (to which I go every year) is held. The idea is to make it like Lowlands, so with a lot of atmosphere and culture next to the music, but mainly focused on older bands. Could be very interesting, but there's not much information available on that festival yet...

I was born in 1977. Take it from me, you didn't miss much.

I don't know if I "lived" through the 90's. I was born in 1982 but what I remember from the 90's sorta sucked. Everyone where I grew up was either pretending they were from Compton or pretending they were Kurt Cobain.

Airwalks were ****ing everywhere and thats the dumbest, ugliest shoe to have ever caught on. Korn exploded which was fine, but everything they brought with them was terrible. The mid-to-late 90's was, musically, an odd time where the Foo Fighters and Ben Folds Five were mixed in with Squirrel Nut Zippers, Swing Music, and bands like Size 14, Monster Magnet, and the inexplicable rise of Lenny Kravitz.

MTV was officially dead by 1997 save for the constant Marilyn Manson interviews, which brings up another assanine trend. We had to put up with goth kids as early as 13. Thanks Manson.

Pogs, JNCO, some really ****ty SNL years...I think I agree with Mr. Zoon.

Somehow had the feeling you were older.
Wise man, wise man.
